11:02 pm
are you fired up? >> president obama held his final day ohio event in columbus. an estimated 15,000 supporters and a pitch aimed at ohio. >> i'm proud we saved the auto industry. i'm even prouder that we're making better cars now. gl the president vizzed volunteers and called an voters. >> for days republican volunteers like jeremy bosco has visited the suburbs to make sure romney backers vote. >> i'll be there tuesday morning. >> thank you so much. >> jeremy knows ohio is must win for romney. >> do you figure if i do a great job here, now, in this county in ohio, i could get my guy to the white house? >> in a small way, yes. >> ohio early voting has been busy but republican poll
11:03 pm
watchers could challenge the balance. >> if you have a tight race in the state of ohio, you could have a decision we won't know the results of for about two weeks. >> with no time to worry about that, president obama went to iowa. mitt romney to new hampshire, campaigning into the night. in a surprise move the romney campaign announced he'll come back to ohio, to cleveland, and pennsylvania tomorrow. for one last push on election day. from cincinnati, ohio, ooem steve handelsman, news 4. >> volunteers are ready. eric gonzalez with last minute prop rations across the area and what you can do to avoid spending hours in line. >> well, one of the things that people are urging voters to do is especially if you have to go out to places like maryland where the ballots or the sample ballots look like this and the
11:04 pm
questions are lengthy, go over them, revise them. know how you're going to vote tomorrow. >> i'm excited. i can't wait. i can't wait. yeah! >> millions will eagerly take to the pollsn what could likely be a frenzy. but tonight it's quiet. it's about the prep work. seals ready to be broken at just the right time. >> we anticipate a heavy turnout tomorrow. >> virginia polling places will set up its machines tomorrow morning. >> a lot of folks have sacrificed a lot. just a few days ago about 70,000 people showed up to show up early. >> this is our first time with early voting. >> but only five polling sites. tomorrow there will be more than

11:06 pm
from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. i.d. requirements in d.c. and maryland may depend on your polling location or if you're a first time voter. heading into election day, the battleground getting the most attention is ohio. it won't necessarily be the state that decides the presidential race. we show you how virginia could tip the scales one way or another. in the electoral college, both central candidates have a path to victory without ohio. and both of those paths could rely heavy on virginia. the state you see in grain on the map are still considered tossups according to nbc news. where virginia denies the presidential race. let's take a look. if president obama wins nevada, iowa and pennsylvania, nevada, iowa, and pennsylvania, and
11:07 pm
let's say mitt romney wins colorado, new hampshire, and florida. new hampshire, colorado, that leaves three toss-ups. wisconsin, ohio, and the old dominion. so if the candidates split, ohio and wisconsin, neither one of them gets to the 270 electoral votes needed to win without virginia. and the final nbc news wall street journal poll before this election, it shows virginia in a statistic call tie. back to you. >> the following two breaking stories tonight. a commuter train hit and killed a person. no word on what led to the identity of the victim. shuttles have been taking some passengers to their death nations.

11:12 pm
>> around our part of the country, it is getting cold out there. >> you better bundle up big time. take a look at the numbers already. 39 in washington. a very cold night. by far the coldest night we have seen so far this year. that's why we have freeze warnings in effect all across the area. most of northern virginia, too. it's going to be a very cold morning. and yes the pattern is still set for a coastal storm. but the newest data is just in. how will the storm affect you. i'll show you in my forecast. >> thanks. coming up next, a student pilot with a really interesting landing. we'll show you how this went down. >> some speeding fines have been >> some speeding fines have been slashed in the
11:13 pm
11:14 pm
in virginia, we know education means opportunity. that's why tim kaine expanded pre-k... championed higher ed and job training... helping make virginia "the best state to raise a child." but george allen has not made our kids a priority. as governor, he tried to cut funding for public schools.
11:15 pm
in washington, allen voted to end tax deductions for college tuition. and now, a budget plan that devastates k-12 classrooms-- all to pay for even more tax breaks for the wealthy. seiu cope is responsible for the content of this ad. dramatic home video captured a pretty close call in texas. a small plane clipped an suv as it was coming in for a landing. a student pilot was at the helm. his wife was recording the lesson when it happened. the plane's landing gear was ripped off. part of the suv's roof collapsed but nobody was hurt. the couple in the suv describes the scene. >> it was like a hawk with the
11:16 pm
talons copping in scooping up the car and then the talons breaking off. >> i saw it about a second before it hit. i was opening my mouth to go duck, the next thing you know there's shattering. >> the suv was on an access road next to the airport when the plane clipped them. the faa is investigating. >> the 2-year-old boy who fell into a wild dog exhibit at a pittsburgh zoo was killed by the dogs. the medical examiner's report released today says the little boy was mauled after he fell into the exhibit. it happened yesterday. the boy's mother placed her son on a wooden rail so he could see better when he lost his balance. witnesses say he bounced off a net to break his fall and into the exhibit. tv host sharon osbourne
11:17 pm
reveals she recently had a double mastectomy despite never getting a diagnosis. she found out she carries a gene that increases her risk of developing cancer. she has already battled colon cancer. she called the decision a no brainer and says she's happy to start enjoying life as a grandparent. most of us have fines in d.c. that dropped by $25 today. some city leaders say it's still not enough. the residents believe the program is about raising money instead of increasing safety. a spokesperson called the fines unfair. in d.c. if you're caught going 11 miles over the speed limit you get a fine. police say the cameras have reduced traffic deaths. doug is here with more about the weather. it got cold in a hurry. >> it's really cold out there.
11:18 pm
what does that put us early tomorrow morning? that puts us lower. in the 20s. that's where we're going to be when you wake up and walk out the door. a lot of people getting up early to go out and vote. if you're waiting in line, you will be outside, you will be on the cold side. it's still well below average. today was nine days in a row below average. we'll get to ten fairly easily tomorrow. might get close to 11 or 12 days below average before we go up. 34 in fredericksburg. this is the first time that many of these areas have seen temperatures at or below freezing. that's why we have the freeze warning in effect for the entire
11:19 pm
region. back to the west for the most part. you've already seen your freeze. that's why you do not have a freeze warning. you will get below freezing. once again, expect a cold morning. do not expect rain tonight. if it did fall, it would be falling as snow right now. but that won't be the case. through tomorrow we stay dry. here's the system that will make its way to the coast and then move up the coast. the latest computer models, and this is good news, taking this further out to sea, and i like that scenario. i do not think this will be a big impact at all across the region. the latest is a low-impact event for southern maryland up to the philadelphia region in new jersey. around 3:00. mostly starting as rain. but maybe right away as some snow here. so this is one thing we're going to watch very closely. 11:00 at night. maybe as far west as the i-95
11:20 pm
corridor. if it were to fall, it would be snow. again, this is a low impact event for us. high impact because of the winds. and the surge here in new york and the jersey shore, they do not want to see this. once again, the latest models keeping us further out to sea some inland snow is still possible. isolated slick spots in the area, possible but not probable. we will see coastal problems. a lot of beach erosion. still a lot of time to figure this out. still have 24 to 48 hours to watch this. right now i'm not anticipating much of the storm at all for us. tomorrow morning, temperatures 25 to 35 degrees. it will stay cold all afternoon
11:21 pm
with a high of 49. 45 on your wednesday. 49 on thursday. you can take the percentages down as far as the rain and snow is concerned. then here's one thing that i'm really happy about. the weekend is looking good. 62 on saturday. 65 on sunday. monday, a temperature of 67. not bad at all. i don't know what that was. >> it's beaver fever. yeah. that was so much fun tonight.
11:22 pm
11:23 pm
11:24 pm
11:25 pm
>> i missed something. not unusual. i assumed that mike shannahan was kind of taking on politicians. zbl media people always misquoting. he did say that nine times. today he admits he did not clearly articulate his point after the game. so the coach spent this afternoon clarifying those statements. he wants everyone to know that he is absolutely not punting on this season. he raised a lot of eyebrows about going into eflgts mode and trying to figure out which guys want to be on the team for years to come.
11:26 pm
many assume that was coach speak for looking to next year. here's the coach from today singing a different tune. >> each game is like a playoff game. you want to see how your players respond. i done care if it's a first year player, a 15-year player. it doesn't matter. we'll see how they play from now on through the rest of the season. when you talk about five games in the nfc east. we're just starting the nfc tour. to think we would play young players or suggest we play young players in the season that is over with is completely ludicrous. >> he is saying the playoffs start in two weeks. the capitals have good news to report. their head coach is being inducted into the hockey hall of fame on monday. the first thing reporters said was congratulations, and the
11:27 pm
second thing was to ask about the lockout. >> it's very frustrating. but it happens in all walks of life. you got to take a mature attitude about it. do i want to coach the guys? absolutely. it happened to me when i was a player. it happens everywhere. we have to wait it out. >> we're waiting with you, coach. college basketball teams are counting down. many opening up the season, this weekend they're opening up the season. they're tipping off in a location unlike any other. georgetown will face florida off the coast of jacksonville on an aircraft carrier the uss katan. >> it's going to be an unbelievable opportunity this year. we play a great team in florida. to be able to do it at that venue as the first game of the season, it's going to be amazing. >> this is bigger than just a
11:28 pm
game. it's a privilege. it's a privilege for the school to have the opportunity to go ahead and play. to have the opportunity to go down and to tour and to learn and interact. so that alone, it's an honor to play for this country. so we are privileged. >> it's an honor that only six teams in the country are getting. that's four
11:29 pm
11:30 pm
11:31 pm
a lot of anticipation for
11:32 pm
tomorrow's elections. for a lot of young people, today don't really care. they had something more important on their minds. it was at the verizon center tonight. justin bieber was at the verizon center tonight. our cameras captured a bit of the excitement as the fans poured in. in case it's not really obvious. bieber has a few number one albums. >> a few. >> the latest is called believe. it's certified platinum, we're told. it was before a sellout crowd. >> and that was the screaming before they saw him. imagine. well, don't go anywhere. anncr: it's said that character is what we do... when we think no one is looking. mitt romney: believe that they are victims. anncr: mitt romney thought no one was looking when... he attacked forty-seven percent of americans. his companies shipped jobs overseas. his plan cuts millionaires' taxes, but raises yours.
11:33 pm
he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message.
